TR - Forestdale Patches, August 4, 2011

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

There are still plenty of patch skiing choices around Forestdale.
(Although the road still doesn't go through over the top due to snow.)

I made today a 3 patch day. I skied a backside patch, the looker's left of the left patch patch, as well as the left patch.

Since this was a solo mission I experimented with some of the custom settings on my camera (timer and burst mode together.)

An animated .gif of me skiing the backside patch:

A still of the same area:

Looking down the looker's left of the left patch patch:

Looking up at the looker's left of the left patch patch:

I didn't get any pictures of the left patch. It was longer than the others, but also more suncupped. It still felt good to get some more August skiing in.

While Stevmo was schussing Forestdale, I was exploring around Meadow Lake and French Lake out in the Fordyce area. The patches out there were much smaller and more spread out than anything still lurking on the Eastside (i.e. Carson Pass, Ebbetts, etc). I ended up spending 6 hours hiking and skiing 7 patches. The two craziest moments were waiting for an earthmover to clear snow off the road so I could access the 4x4 area and later having my Taco Mama pull a Ford F-250 out of a snow berm.

The Taco Mama allows for much more adventurous recon.
